Neuman, Delia; And Others
This manual for the teacher and/or counselor is part of the microcomputer version of the Carerer Planning System (CPS). CPS is a comprehensive instructional package designed to provide individualized career exploration and career-planning experiences for students of approximately middle-school age. This microcomputer version is designed to take advantage of the motivational, managerial, and interactive capabilities of the Atari 800 microcomputer to provide individualized career exploration and career-planning experiences for students with mild learning handicaps. Students with mild mental retardation, learning disabilities, and behavior handicaps reading at the 3.5 grade level will profit from working with this instructional package. Section 1 provides a basic theoretical awareness of the goals, purposes, conceptual bases, and developmental history of the CPS. It describes the content, organization, and sequence of student activities. Section 2 describes the steps to get ready to use the CPS microcomputer hardware and software with the students, procedures for making and using back-up disks of students' records, and built-in options. The instructional procedures for using the CPS are then discussed. Steps for developing an education plan and the teacher's role are considered. Section 3 contains ideas for supplementary group activities, discussions, games, and other activities expanding upon the individualized core activities. A listing of information sources is appended.
